Do y’all know who Barbara Costello is? She is a Chicago native and social media sensation, known affectionately as Brunch with Babs, quickly amassed a huge following during quarantine and has been dubbed the internet’s grandmother. She is funny, smart and I can’t wait to see what she shares next. Babs is proof that you’re never too old to learn something new. She shares 100’s of tips, life hacks, recipes and more with millions of followers…no kidding. Instagram is how I discovered her Brunch with Babs blueberry muffins recipe.

First, Babs lets us know that this recipe originated at Jordan Marsh Department Stores. Their stores were in operation from the 1860’s to the mid-1990’s. Back in the day, major department stores operated upscale restaurants and bakeries. This recipe was served there. Here’s how to make some for yourself.

Feel free to use paper muffin cups instead of parchment paper.However, I feel that using the parchment paper creates a better bake and a fancier looking muffin.

Yield: 12 muffins

Jordan Marsh Famous Blueberry Muffins Secret Recipe. Berry delicious!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature 1 and 1/4 white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries. If frozen, thaw and drain


    Preheat the oven to 375.

    Cream the butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar until light.

    Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Add vanilla.

    Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder, and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.

    Crush 1/2 cup blueberries with a fork, and mix into the batter.

    Fold in the remaining whole berries.

    Line a 12 cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners, and fill with batter.

    Sprinkle the 3 teaspoons sugar over the tops of the muffins, and bake at 375 degrees for about 30-35 minutes.

    Remove muffins from tin and cool at least 30 minutes. Store, uncovered, or the muffins will be too moist the second day, if they last that long.

Blueberry Muffin Tip

By adding crushed blueberries and whole blueberries, the fruit is distributed throughout. Typically berries sink to the bottom of a muffin. This means that you have several bites without blueberries.

Just look at this berry goodness.
